9 editions, and counting! How time flies! We have you to thank for this success!

It's 2012,  and we are back with the 10th edition of your favorite monthly fest. The October edition (Kinanda Fest 9)  saw us relocate to the KARI grounds, and it was absolutely amazing. Here's a video recap of the 'Tumehama Edition'.


 We are particularly excited about this particular edition that sees us introduce yet another aspect of art: film, and will see us feature two locally produced short films!

Ladies and gentlemen, behold, Kinanda Fest 10.

  1. This is one of the best African/Kenyan festivals of all time. I never want to miss even a single one of them. Keep up the great work.
